Agave & Rye opens first Indiana location

The restaurant's new location in New Albany is holding a grand opening on Feb. 17.

NEW ALBANY, Ind. — A Louisville hot spot known for tacos and tequila is taking the leap over the river and opening up in Indiana.

Agave & Rye is opening a new location in New Albany on Wednesday, Feb. 17. The grand opening is scheduled for 11 a.m.

The new location will open in the old Hull & High Water building at 324 E Main St. It will be the company's first location in Indiana.

According to a press release, the design of each Agave & Rye location looks different, but "walks an intriguing line between fine art and street art." The New Albany location will also feature an outdoor patio.

"This truly is a one-of-a-kind dining experience, that we’re sure will bring life to an already foodie-loving community,” said founder Yavonne Sarber.

With a lot of restaurants and small businesses struggling right now, Corporate Regional Manager Chris Britt said the opening of this new location is a way to give back to the community.

"They need something to help them forget all that's going on and that's what we give...is an escape for the community so we're trucking right along," Britt said.

The restaurant opened its first location in Louisville in Feb. 2020 on Baxter Ave. Agave & Rye also has locations in Covington and Lexington in Kentucky as well as three locations in Ohio.

Along with the wide variety of tacos, they also boast 70 varieties of tequila and more than 90 varieties of bourbon.
